TANNING'S MEN; OR THE MASS 4

tracts fiom a wotk 'A Campaign in Tex

from iho pen of Von H. Elirer.berg.a young
oerman, w ho served ihrough the brief bu
terrific struggle in 1835 between Texas and
Mexico, and who look pari in soma of the
most fearful scenes of 'iffat campaign, being
likewise one of the three or four who es
csped from the treacherous massacre at
Gulaid, where Farming's men were murder

rnbtrg give the subjoined account of lb

K arched on in silence, riot, however, in tl.t
direction we had anticipated, but along tin
road to Victoria. This surprised us; bu
upon reflection we concluded that ihej
were conducting us to soma eastern port
thence to bo shipped to New Orleans, which
upon the whole, was perhaps the best am
shortest plan. There was something how
ever, in the profound uilcnca of the Mexieai
(soldiers, who are usually unceasing chat
terers, thai inspired me with a feeling ofun
easiness and anxiety. It was like a funera
march, and truly might it so be clled Pre
sently I turned my head to eeo if MillerV
people had joined, and wero marching with
us. Dul, to my extreme astonishment,
neither they nor Tanning's men nor the
Georgia batwlion were to be seen. They
had separated us without our observing it
and the detachment with which I wa.
marching consisted anly of the Greys anil
a fnw Tcxian colonists. Glancing at tin
escort, their full dress uniform and the ab
tencs of all baggage, new for the fust lime
struck me. 1 thought of the bloody setics
that occurred at Tainpico, S.in Patricio, and
the Almo, of the faUo and cruel character ol
ihos in whose power we were, and 1 wa
siezod wiih a presentment of evil For
moment I was about lo communicate m
apprehensions to my comrades; but hope,
which never dies, again caused ino to laM
a more cheering view of our situation.
Nevertheless, in order lo bo prepared foi
the worst, and, in case of need, to be unen
cumbeied in my movements, I watched my
opportunity, and threw away amongst the
grass of the prairie a bundle containing the
lew things that the thievish Mexicans luri
allowed me to retain.
A quaiter of an hour had elapsed sinrr
our departure from the fori, when uddenU
the command was given in Spanish to
whcid to the left, leaving the road; and, a.
we did no; unduistaud iho order, the oflicei
